It only takes a surface reading of the daily headlines on Fox News or CNN to see that the curse of sin and the men who delight in it are waging war against our children in unprecedented ways. Consider the following:

Texas woman sets her three children on fire;
US Prosecutor arrested for seeking to have sex with girl, 5;
Fashion show blasted for using 13 year-old as their sexy model spotlight;
Kidnappers force teenagers to smoke marijuana and perform sex acts;
Celebrity faced with losing custody of two toddlers because of wild lifestyle;

These are just examples of how people within our culture are exploiting and causing physical, emotional and spiritual injury to children in order to satisfy the cravings of their corrupt desires. The stories I came across today stirred up emotions ranging from disgust to outright anger against these predators who use our children for their own gain or as bargaining chips in society. These are some of the more perverted examples of the curse of sin and the hatred we should have as believers for its effects on our world. May Jesus hasten to make all things new while protecting the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of my children in this broken world.
